GAZA on NPR

NPR.org, the website of National Public Radio, presents the exclusive premiere of "Not with All the Hope in the World", a song off Gaza's upcoming third album, No Absolutes in Human Suffering.

NPR's Lars Gotrich calls Gaza, "the musical equivalent of a panther rattling a barbed-wire cage" and goes on to praise the new album's incorporation of melody: "the band's blast-beaten hooks lure as much as they devastate".

No Absolutes in Human Suffering was produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Torche, Today Is the Day). The album is now available digitally via iTunes. The CD release is set for August 28 on Black Market Activities, with a vinyl release to follow. The CD and vinyl can be pre-ordered now via IndieMerch.

Gaza hit the road tomorrow for a headlining West Coast tour with Eagle Twin, including a stop at the Power of the Riff Festival in LA.
